Good News! 7 Caribbean Countries Are Going To Ban The Single-Use Plastic Starting January 1st, 2020

Single-Use Plastic is ban in 7 Caribbean Countries

Slowly and gradually many of the countries have protested against consuming the single-use plastic as it is bringing the marine and ocean life to an end. As a consequence, marine animals are facing so many deaths every year. Well, the increasing use of plastic has become a matter of concern this is why seven Caribbean countries have decided to ban the consumption of single-use plastic starting from January 1st, 2020. I think that’s a good move to welcome the New Year.

It is very important to take this step as we humans can’t fully understand and are not capable of accurately predicting the extent to which plastic pollution will affect marine life in the near future. This move which will be implemented from 1st January 2020 will surely prevent ocean pollution which directly affects marine life. 

Which 7 Caribbean Countries Will Ban The Use Of Plastic from 1st January 2020?

Seven Caribbean countries that are going to ban single-use plastics are Jamaica, Belize, Barbados, Dominican Republic, Grenada, Trinidad and Tobago, and the Bahamas.

Why it is important?

Implementing this move is important as it is severely affecting marine life and putting their life to an end. Do you know on average, 5 billion plastic bags made from petroleum products are consumed each year and most of these items take hundreds of years to degrade? 

Taking plastic pollution very seriously, People in India have started to make containers and cups using a banana leaf and other tree leaves. These leaves are eco-friendly and easily decomposed.

Some of the important facts to look at

  1. Do you know the Caribbean region is one of the top contributors of plastic pollution?
  1. Trinidad and Tobago produce nearly 1.5 kilograms of plastic waste per person in a day which is the highest in the world.
  1. Each year more than 300,000 tons of plastic waste in the Caribbean Sea is not collected and is dumped back into the water which adversely affects marine life.
  1. As per the UN Environment, it was reported that 4 million plastic scraps were collected in the coastal areas between 2006 and 2012 from the Caribbean region.
  1. Increasing contamination by single-use plastic will affect small Caribbean countries in the coming years.
  1. The Bahamian government has estimated that the current rate of plastic pollution can cause tourism losses of up to US$10 million per year.

Bottom Line

Plastic pollution has gained traction over the years which is badly affecting marine life and thus leading to the death of aquatic animals living in there. Surely, this is the best move that is going to be implemented in the New Year 2020 which will also help not only in preventing ocean pollution but also saving marine life.

Now People are Bidding 'Goodbye' To Single-Use Plastic

We all know how harmful plastic is and what consequences it can have on our health and environment? Though we know still most of us are not making use of paper bags or something which is eco-friendly. Thankfully, many companies, organizations, and even people are fighting to tackle the issue of the plastic problem. Even there is one company namely, Tenith Innovations which has replaced single-use plastics with Banana leaf. They are using them for everyday uses.

Now let me take you through where Banana leaf is used by most of the people

On of the Twitter user, @Savi_IFS has shared some pictures of banana leaves being used as bowls and as a food container. Those pictures have gone viral. We are not sure whether the image is from Thailand or anywhere else? But this image has banana leaves from different places including India.

People are very much impressed by these banana leaves and they wanted to contact the suppliers of such containers. To this, one person tweeted a picture of using banana leaves to wrap food items with a caption, ‘We use it for our packaging and delivery through the flight to ITC Hotel in Kolkata from Guwahati’.

Even a local vendor, KirenRijiju from north-east was witnessed wrapping a fish in a banana leaf.

Plucking banana leaves isn’t harming the habitat

Now you must be thinking that plucking so many leaves from the trees is not a good idea as we are using it for our personal uses. Then let me tell you, the leaves are plucked in such a way that they eventually regenerate easily. So, there is no destruction caused to natural life. In this way, we are saving the environment, our health, and habitat too. Isn’t that amazing?
